204(l) and the Posthumous Petitioner: It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over

This 90 minute web seminar was originally presented live on November 17, 2011.

In a generous expansion of the old widower provisions, §204(l) resurrects many petitions automatically revoked under prior statutes. Survivor benefits can now apply under a variety of scenarios with both family and employment-based petitions. Learn the ins and outs of this relatively new provision. In addition find out when “humanitarian reinstatement” may be invoked to revive a petition.

  • Death of the Spouse Petitioner
  • Death of Other Petitioners
  • Death of the Beneficiary and Effect on Derivatives
  • Who Is Still Not Covered by the New Provisions?
  • Humanitarian Relief under Prior Regulations
    • Substitute Sponsor on the I-864
    • How Does this Interplay with CSPA?
  • What to Do after a Denial
  • Consular Processing v. AOS
